Aprilia upgrades 2010 Shiver 750
Already a stunning naked sport bike, Aprilia has upgraded the Shiver 750 for 2010, making it, according to Aprilia, “more racing spirit, more aggressive, more ergonomic.”
Changes to the Aprilia Shiver 750’s ergonomics include a new, two-inch narrower seat, a more-protective fairing, a race-inspired riding position, new footpegs that are farther rearward and handlebars with a flatter bend.
According to Aprilia, “It is a bike which can seduce even the most demanding rider, but it is also able to bring on those who are new to the two-wheeled scene, as it is so amazingly easy to ride.”
Returning is the 90-degree V-twin Aprilia powerplant with four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft and liquid cooling (maximum output: 95 hp at 9,000 rpm), Ride-by-Wire technology with three powerband maps, modular trellis/aluminium frame with significant torsional rigidity, braced aluminium swingarm, laid-down rear shock (5.1 inches of travel) and 43 mm upside down fork (4.7 inches of travel).
New are Wave discs with radial calipers, 320mm discs and steel-braided lines, plus a 5.5-inch wide 17-inch rear wheel. ABS is optional.
The 2010 Shiver 750 uses the multi-map integral Ride-by-Wire technology that has been developed even through the racing experience gained with the RSV4 in World Superbike with Max Biaggi aboard.
With the simple touch of the starter button, and on-the-fly, the rider can select one of the three maps, and radically change the motorcycle’s character.
> Sport is available for the most aggressive riders.
> Touring can be selected when smoother power delivery and fluidity are essential.
> Rain offers maximum safety when traction is limited.
